Did anybody try to combine antibiotics and non-irradiated garlic that Mr. Bob Anderson mentioned? I tried combining antibiotic that is susceptible to my Mrsa and garlic oil capsules but to no avail. I thought maybe someone tried combining the former and see if they are more potent to the mrsa and can eradicate it.

Yes, the combination of an appropriate antibiotic, plus supplements, and many hours soaking in garlic-infused baths helped clear our son's staph this summer.

He had been on immune-boosting supplements, probiotics, allicin and topical treatments, but no antibiotics, for almost a year before we tried the combination. It was not an easy route to take since he had constant outbreaks throughout the whole time.

He is still on all the supplements, and he has become resigned to the idea that he will have to stay on them for life. He is much more amenable to the idea now since garlic water has totally cured his acne :)!

Garlic oil, while healthful, is not the same as the active ingredient in crushed raw garlic.

Mom in Calif is right, the compounds in garlic oil are totally different than the compounds in crushed raw natural garlic (CRG). Eating garlic or garlic pills or oils greatly help to build the immune system but do nothing to directly attack the staph. Applying crushed raw non-irradiated garlic or water containing it directly to the site of the infection works by killing all staph, including MRSA, and no bacteria, including MRSA, can become immune to it.

Pharmaceutical antibiotics work by blocking chemical receptors on the outer cell walls of bacteria but if the receptors are of a different configuration, those antibiotics don't work, as in MRSA. The fat-soluble allicin in crushed raw garlic penetrates right through those bilipid cellular walls and gets into the interior of the bacteria and causes it to swell up and burst, killing it. No bacteria, including MRSA can become immune to that. That's why the allicin or the water containing it has to come into contact with the bacteria directly to work but when it is brought into contact it works every time.

Yes, MRSA can come back but CRG will kill it every time and MRSA cannot become immune to it. CRG and garlic water soaks are the best tool to stop an outbreak before it flares up into a major problem because once it gets deep inside it is a lot harder to get to.

It is important to use both oral and direct application to both build up the immune system and attack the MRSA direct. You can take as many garlic pills as you want and eat all the raw garlic you want and it will have little or no affect on the infectious processes. Direct application of CRG to the site of the lesion is the only way garlic works to directly kills MRSA cells.

Using garlic both internally and externally in combination with a program of pharmaceutical antibiotics is likely to be more efficatious than either approach alone. There is at least one published study proving this and some yet-unpublished research which indicates that will likely prove that this multi-pronged attack is the best one.

I suggest you read all the garlic related threads in this forum and learn all you can about how garlic works as it is the best place on the internet to learn about how to use garlic to combat bacterial infections of all kinds, including MRSA and also multiple drug resistant tuberculosis (MDRT), e-Coli, ulcers and oirritable bowel syndrome among many other bacterial infections

An educated patient makes better decisions.

Good luck to you.

Where do you find non-irradiated garlic? I got some at the grocery
today to give it a try on my son with MRSA but I didn't see any green in
the center of the garlic clove like I read about. Can someone direct me
where to find non-irradiated garlic and maybe a pic showing what one
looks like to be sure I'm using something that will work? Thanks so

Every clove of every normal garlic bulb has a small growing shoot in its center in a sheath in an otherwise solid clove. Remove a clove from a bulb and cut it vertically down the center and look for a little shoot with tiny leaves and if you see one, your garlic is good and has not been irradiated. But, if there is no sprout, only an empty sheath then the garlic has been irradiated and won't work.

If you saw an empty sheath with no growing sprout, I was irradiated but it doesdn't have to be green if there were a white or eggshell-colored sprout it would still be good garlic but if there was nothing in the center then it was irradiated.

In addition to the big beautiful bulbs in the produce dept, lots of times in the spice section or the Hispanic foods section there are some smaller bulbs in little boxes with cellophane windows so you can see the garlic. There's usually two per box. Those are seldom irradiated. You may also find some larger bulbs in a healtyh food store. It's hard to get good garlic in the spring since harvest time is early to mid summer.

Either growing your own or knowing someone who does are your best bets. If there is a local farmers market open you may be able to find some there.

If you can't find any good fresh garlic then garlic powder usually works if it has been made right and even if poorly made, usually still has some potency.

If you want to try growing your own you can Google "Growing Garlic" and get several places to buy although planting time isn't until fall and harvest time the following summer so that option is for the future not the present.

Good luck to you.

To Mom in Calif, I thought applying CRG directly to the affected surface is better than garlic water. Is your son's acne in his face? Is it too harsh to appply it directly to the face? But Mr. Bob Anderson said that using CRG directly does not leave any scars.
Thanks in advance.

Good point.

If you catch the outbreak while it is still small it will clear it up quickly and leave no scars. On the other hand if there is already a large open pit type of lesion, the chances of leaving a scar increase.

If crg is applied directly it will burn like crazy for a minute or two but it will burn less or not at all when diluted in water, depending on concentration in the water. When one is dealing with a large lesion or a large area containing many lesions, the burning sensation can be quite intense, which is why many people prefer to use it watered down. Garlic water is also less likely to burn tender skin.

Hope this helps.

Is the crushed raw garlic method only for getting rid of individual MRSA outbreaks? In other words, is there a possibility that it will cure the condition for good, or only treat each outbreak? Is there a way to kill it systemically so that it never comes back?

According to posts in the Garlic Success Stories thread, If people will use the garlic baths until new outbreaks stop coming, it will go away and not come back. It will not render immunity and so one can get a new infection but if one gets a new infection, at least they know how to make it go away. MRSA cannot become resistant to the allicin in natural non-irradiated garlic so it kills every time.

It is better than anything medical science has and a tiny fraction of the cost.

In the northern hemisphere this time of year, fresh garlic is almost impossible to find so people have to use garlic powder (NOT garlic salt). It will be another month or two before the new crop becomes available and even then it must be bought at farmers markets as the garlic in the stores is almost all from China and has been irradiated and will not work. Only natural non-irradiated garlic works. Luckily, people can grow their own at home.

Hope this helps.

Are there any CRG products on the market ?

No, there are no products using CRG as it is a very temporary state and cannot be stabilized once it is created. Depending on how much allicin is created and how it is processed and used, it will eventually break down into less potent metabolites with entirely different properties.

It sounds as though you have been reading some of the garlic and garlic water threads; there's a lot of technical discussions about what happens when allicin gets into one's circulation system and has a chance to stay there for a while. It all has to come from scratch or from some good hot garlic powder, if one can find any.

Living garlic is such a dynamic thing but its active period is limited and must be made fresh frequently. One could actually use the same garlic bath water over and over as it will kill any bacteria that gets in it but after three days the smell of allyl mercaptan would become dominant making one want to drain the tub and start over with a fresh tub. Mercaptan is the same thing natural gas companies add to their odorless gas to give it a foul odor so that people know when there is a gas leak.

The right garlic can be hard to find and is seldom found in supermarkets so farmers markets where you can buy locally grown produce is a good place or a friend who gardens. Best of all, grow your own so that you know what kind it is and where it came from as well as what's in it. It's important to know where your food comes from and what's in it.

About the only thing that is available as a product is garlic powder if you can find one that is real hot to the taste.

I have posted this information elsewhere but it is very important so please read.

Can we speak frankly for a minute? There's a serious problem threatening all of us. Everybody. Everywhere. From the poorest person in the world to the richest. All are potential victims. None are exempt. That threat is antibiotic resistance. Doesnít sound very harmful, but what is it and where does it come from?

You have to go back almost 100 years to understand. Back then, bacterial infections were running rampant, killing millions all over the world; that is, up until the invention of antibiotics, which finally stemmed the flood of bacteria. However; in order to be able to kill bacteria, antibiotics must be able to chemically bond with a receptor on the surface of the bacterium. Bacteria have been able to mutate new receptors that antibiotics cannot bond with and so are increasingly ineffective.

By comparison, garlic, an entirely natural plant, is not subject to antibiotic resistance as garlic kills in an entirely more direct way and is not affected at all by antibiotic resistance

How garlic works is weird but effective. You crush a whole bulb of peeled garlic and let the garlic set in air for a few minutes before adding it to a warm tub of clear water, no soap and just soak in it for 60 to 90 minutes and then rinse off and dry.

Because of the nature of garlic, the allicin created by the crushing carries a positive electrical charge and mingles with the water and because the tiny growing tip in each clove has a small amount of DiMethyl SulfOxide (DMSO) soaks into the skin, where it gets into the capillaries close to the skin and gets into circulation in the blood stream because thatís how things work in the body. Because of Allicinís dual chemo-electric nature, it is naturally attracted to bacteria, which carries a negative electrical charge. Neither the allicin nor the bacteria can avoid this natural attraction and when the allicin comes into contact with a bacterium, it penetrates automatically into the interior of the bacterium, causing it to swell up and burst, killing the bacterium. Bacteria cannot survive this encounter and perishes. Every time. It is a law of nature. It works more effectively than anything modern medicine has and costs only a few cents to grow and the the pharmaceutical companies hate it.

It is seriously time to think about what youíre going to do the next time your doctor tells you that your $1,000 antibiotic isnít working and there isn't anything else.

Your choices are fairly simple, you can hope for the best or grow your own garlic. Pick one.
